 A new report revealed that some companies in the Australian mine industry are providing an inadequate level of training to employees.

Australian mines appear to be cutting corners in order to meet safety regulations. A Queensland Department of Mines safety report cautioned that some training organizations commissioned by the mining companies were rushing mine safety training to comply with pressure from mining companies in order to cut training time.

The report states that the 2011-2012 fiscal year,has the potential of being the most dangerous fiscal year in mining sites in the past 10 years. There’s been increases in injuries, in the time employees needed to recover from inuries, and in employees who needed medical attention

According to the report, mines were employee untrained workers and putting said workers through inadequate training regimens. The report did not indicate however that despite an increase in injuries, Australia still boasts one of the world’s safest mining industries.

In an effort to improve these safety failings, complaints will be reported to the Australian Skills Quality Authority, a regulator of training programs. This agency will be taking over responsibility from the Department of Training and Employment.
